Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware because there is a duplicate device already running in the system. (Code 42)

Duplicate device already running in the system. (Code 42)

A duplicate device was detected. This error occurs when a bus driver incorrectly creates two identically named children (bus driver error), or when a device with a serial number is discovered in a new location before it is removed from the old location.

Restart the computer.
